Answer

Answer

Both EHE and angiosarcomas of the pleural are lethal tumors with a very poor prognosis. [93] Presently, there are no reliable prognostic factors. Anecdotal accounts of extended survival in patients with pleural EHE may suggest a better prognosis for well-differentiated tumors in this category; however, further studies of this issue are required.
